What just happened?

It's 3:20am and I've been up since 1:30am after having gone to bed at around 11:00pm.

I can't go back to bed. I didn't say I can't go back to sleep. I said I can't go back to bed. I mean I physically cannot go back to bed.

There isn't any room there for me.

Two children and a husband have completely spread out sucking up any room I might be able to wiggle into like a black hole sucks up light.

About an hour ago I tried to go and sleep in one of the kids beds. It was a joke so I gave it up and resigned myself to the fact that while my family sleeps blissfully mommy is only going to get two and a half hours of sleep tonight.

Motherhood is SO much fun!!!

No, I won't disturb the kids or my darling husband who sleeps like the dead and can't hear anything when he's hibernating.

If I move the kids that will be the end of sleep for the evening and I'll have to be up anyway but rather than being alone, I'll have two kids demanding things of me.

Did I mention that when I decided that the whole kid bed thing wasn't working for me I came into the kitchen and almost broke my neck with a slip and fall that would have made a Warner Brothers character stand and applaud me? Arms flailing, feet spinning like the road runner and I swear I hovered in the air for about 30 seconds before crashing to earth.

Humphrey peed on the floor.

He now refuses to look at me.

Smart hound...

Of course I was going to use today to run a whole bunch of errands that I need to get done since tonight we are supposed to be socked with a serious snow storm that's going to dump 12 to 18 inches of snow on us.

Yeah. None of those are going to happen today I don't think.

I'm tired and want to go to sleep.

Maybe I'll try the other kids bed.

Just call me Goldilocks.
